CHICAGO -- On Saturday, Oct. 4, more than 20,000 convenience industry professionals will arrive here to take part in the NACS Show 2008, and Convenience Store News’ microsite dedicated to covering the trade show, www.csnewsattheshow.com, will also be there to help attendees plan and navigate the show, and also keep them informed about industry news and events at the show and in the broader market.
The seasoned, award-winning CSNews editorial staff will bring site visitors all the news and information before, during and after the show, allowing both show attendees and those not present to "participate" at maximum capacity from the office or at the show.

In its third year, CSNewsAtTheShow.com has even more new and improved features to enhance the NACS Show experience. Now, any attraction, hotel, restaurant or Chicago area landmark listed on the site can be viewed in Google Maps, allowing NACS Show attendees the ability to get directions to wherever they desire, while also allowing them to virtually explore the area surrounding their accommodations. See what Chicago has in store for you by clicking here.
As in the past, the site features listings of area attractions and entertainment, restaurants, NACS Show hotels, area transportation, golf courses, nightclubs and more. See Chicago’s biggest hits by clicking here.
And back for its second year on the microsite is a Virtual Store Tour designed by CSNews staff to showcase five outstanding retailers in the Chicago area—two 7-Eleven franchisees who were previously White Hen operators, a recently rebranded ampm and two Parent Petroleum stores. Through the Web site, visitors can view exclusive photos of each store and information about the locations. To view the tour, click here.
Also on CSNews at the Show is the industry's longest-running blog—'Spare Change.' Created to be a platform for industry dialogue, visitors can view posts by CSNews and read comments by their peers. By registering with a username and e-mail address, guests can also comment on any issue presented in the blog, or even create their own on the 'Your Two Cents' post.
